Nina Kraviz, who released her excellent debut album last year, is going on an international tour this year which brings her to Williamsburg dance club Output on July 3 for a Blkmarket-presented show with Ben Klock and Taimur & Fahad. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Her only other US show that we're aware of is Movement Festival in Detroit. All dates are listed below (via Resident Advisor).
Nina has been making headlines lately due to her "bath scene" (pictured above) from the interview video Resident Advisor did with her last month. FACT pointed to an article by Greg Wilson about Nina over-sexualizing herself, which Nina responded to in her own letter on Facebook. More controversy arose when Crosstown Rebels' Maceo Plex offered his take on it (which he's since apologized for). And FACT published another article on the matter, which discussed sexism in music, an issue that was also publicly taken on by Grimes and by Solange this week.
All Nina Kraviz dates are listed, along with the Resident Advisor video, a music video, and her entire Facebook letter, below...

DOWNLOAD: Joy Orbison - "Big Room Tech House Dj Tool - TIP!" (MP3)
UK producer Joy Orbison (aka Peter O'Grady) hasn't been to the US in about two years and he recently announced that he'll be going on a short North American tour this February. That tour brings him to NYC for a Blkmarket-presented Nonplus+ Records showcase at a TBA Brooklyn location on February 15. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Joy Orbison will be playing with Nonplus+ head Boddika, and the bill also features Joey Anderson and Blkmarket DJs Taimur & Fahad.
The show doubles as an album release party for Think and Change, an upcoming compilation from NonPlus+ which is due out on February 25. The compilation features a deep house track from Boddika and Joy Orbison ("&Fate") and a wobbly cut from Joy Orbison solo ("Big Room Tech House Dj Tool - TIP!"), both of which you can stream below, and the latter of which you can download above. It also features tracks by Four Tet, Pearson Sound, Martyn, Instra:mental, and more. The full tracklist is below.
Joy Orbison's tour dates also include a London show on the European tour that Mister Saturday Night (Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin's NYC dance party) is going on in February. Mister Saturday Night also has a ton of local events in NYC coming up, including one with FaltyDL.
Speaking of Blkmarket shows at TBA NYC locations, Russian singer/producer Nina Kraviz, who we highlighted last year and who will be featured on the new Brandt Brauer Frick album, is playing one on January 26 with Cem & Rg, Talmur & Fahad, and more guests TBA. Tickets for that one are on sale now. It's the day after the previously discussed Blkmarket-presented Ellen Allien show (tickets).
